Taylor Manor residents receive flowers, cookies from group
Residents of Taylor Manor Nursing Home appreciated the flowers and cookies they recently received from a group of “neighbors” who wanted to brighten their day.
Sister Mary Faustina, Taylor Manor’s administrator, said the nursing home’s residents were thrilled to receive the cookies and flowers, and shared some of their words of appreciation in an email.
“It was wonderful and very thoughtful for people to send cookies and flowers. I was very thankful they were thinking of us.”
Of lunch, one staffer said, “What a delicious surprise.”
Woodford County Neighbors Caring for Neighbors delivered 38 vases of flowers and large cookies to residents of Taylor Manor and box lunches to its staff, according to organizer Lillie Cox. The group formerly known as Woodford County Friends previously delivered flowers, cookies and box lunches to Daisy Hill Senior Living in Versailles and The Homeplace at Midway. Jimmy John’s donated the cookies, but the “neighbors” group purchased the lunches from the Versailles restaurant and assembled the flowers and vases, said Cox.
She said Bessie Bain made “a humming bird watercolor … with love for each vase,” given to Taylor Manor’s residents.
“Our residents are very pleased with the little things people do to stay in contact since they can’t come in (for visits),” Faustina wrote in an email. “Whether it is food and flowers, or coloring books and cards, everyone enjoys receiving a little present. We are all looking forward to the day when we can get back together with our loved ones and it looks like it is coming soon.”
Visits to Kentucky nursing homes are scheduled to resume July 15.
